Films - 'Play It Again: Greatest Hits from The UA School of Theatre, Film & Television'
The second annual "Play It Again" collection of short films from the UA School of Theatre, Film & Television will screen in this year's Loft Film Festival. Selected from works completed in the past several years, the program samples student shorts in genres including science fiction, fantasy, comedy, music video, documentary, dramatic narrative and musical satire - a tantalizing smorgasbord of fresh visions by emerging filmmakers.
The program includes the sci-fi satire "Animal Automaton," a 21st-century take on the Frankenstein story, co-directed by alums Tyler Gillett and Derekh Froude. Gillett's critically acclaimed horror film "V/H/S," produced collaboratively by the group Radio Silence that includes fellow UA alumnus Justin Martinez, premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and screened at the Loft Cinema in October.
Play it Again 2012 was juried by Victoria Lucas, independent producer and former studio executive, and Vicky Westover, director of the UA Hanson Film Institute and film programmer.
